SMAS vs duodenal malrotation
My last post under SMAS had no reply, so I will try again. On 5/25 I will be having a diagnostic laparoscopy in order to determine a diagnosis for my gut issues. I was diagnosed with SMAS in May 2020. Very invasive surgery was suggested which I did not want, especially in a pandemic. Subsequent CT in 11/21 showed duodenal malrotation with no sign of SMAS because I have "A very mobile duodenum". Since imaging won't provide the answer, hopefully laparoscopy will. This is an extremely rare situation, to have two such rare diagnoses. Does anyone have any input for me? I have been told by a gastroenterologist that I must get the malrotation fixed ASAP as it can lead to an " emergency surgical situation quickly."
